The hotel is in a great location for wondering around Cairo. Service is good. Rooms may need a little update but in general decoration is good. Great Ambiance.

I recently spent one night sleeping on the 21st floor of this great hotel; my window dominated the island of Zamalek in the middle of the Nile, and over the entire city and beyond, to the horizon: a breathtaking view. The hotel is really first class: great service, wonderful hall and accessory rooms, private, well-manicured riverfront; the rooms (mine was...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 5 days in early January and were extremely pleased. We chose the Club Floor option, which gave us complimentary breakfast in the club lounge on the 16th floor (made-to-order omelets, fresh-squeezed juices, coffee, pastires, cheese & breads, fresh fruits and jams. International news was always on the big flat-screen TV's and...

From the moment we arrived [after passing Cairo typical security to get in] we felt very welcome. Staff were really friendly, and we got a room despite arriving way before standard check in time [before 8am!]. We also got a king bed without problems, despite being two guys - seems no issue here at all, which is great. Rooms are...

Our tour provider arranged for the hotel and it was a most welcoming introduction to Cairo. The facility is beautiful, the view from our room gave us our first glimpse of the pyramids, and the breakfast buffet was sumptuous. Our room upgrade gave us access to the Club Lounge which had a nice assortment of munchies but were a bit...

Our first trip to Cairo and Sofitel was accepting the US Gov per diem rate. We felt very lucky to stay in such a beautiful hotel. The "infinity pool" is super cool at night. We also loved the brunch outside along the Nile. Great customer service and excellent rooms.
